Iconic OKC Eateries -- Chelinos
Ok, this is just between you and me -- don't tell anyone who lives in this town, but I'm not a huge fan of Chelinos. Honestly, it is what I would call "OK-Mex", which is pretty far from true, real, authentic Mexican food. The other main Mexican food place here that most locals would take you to if you wanted Mexican is called "Teds", which is a little better, but not much.
For me, the best, true Mexican food will come from one of the Mexican markets on SW 29th, one of the more authentic taco trucks, or, alternately, a wonderful family place in Norman called Tarahumaras.
But, Chelinos is "iconic OKC", so here it is.
